Final Farewell - The Angel Company

It is with great sadness that this will be a final farewell to the Angel Company. I have many fond memories of people, places and gatherings. I will always keep TAC in my heart. I have learned and grown so much during my 6 years with them.

Here of some of my favorite new sets from the Final catalog:

Wonderful Trees

Konnichewa (sp?)

Apple of my eye

Beautiful Lace

Please be sure to check back occasionally, to see samples from my newest adventure.

New Chapter

As I told each of you TAC has decided to close it's doors. I had been with them for 6 years and am heartbroken. However, I do understand the decision Mischelle made, and I believe that she made the right one for her family. I have been truely blessed with the people TAC has brought into my life and I am grateful! As this door is closing another is opening...

I am so excited to be a new consultant with Amuse Studio!

It just so happens they are in promo time too! A*Muse*a*Palooza! check out my site there is loads of cute stuff. I am sure your wish list will be long!

You can also view the catalog online and view the winter supplement online! So check it out - and see what I'll be doing. I have events scheduled in September in which I will be bringing this new opportunity. If you would like a catalog before the event, just drop me a line.

I am going to be doing a final farewell to my Angel Company inventory, so be on the look out for stamps and such to purchase. Plus, there is an Angel Blog hop scheduled for the 28th, so be sure to check out here.

Thank you all for being great friends, I love the support each of you give.

Inky Hugs,

Lovin Smile

Love the smile on this stamp image. I can just image the smile on a golfers face as he stares at a open green.

I hope that this simple card makes someone smile.

I am so in love with the new smoothies cardstock that the Angel Company sells. I mean 60 colors to choose from, how could you not what all of them!

The Angel company really listens to the demonstrators, we asked and they delivered. I can not what to share all the samples with these bright colors. Stay tuned lots of color combinations.

Wonderful Tree Bonus Sample

Trying to use the new Nina B set Wonderful tree in a not tree way. I have seen a bunch of wondeful samples with this set. I have several included in the Card Kit available in the month of August.

This one is a bonus to add to the cards that can be made with this set.

Happy creating!

Tuesday Template 08/2/11

Simple sketch to start your Tuesday. I thought I better do a simple sketch since I am challenging myself to color combinations that I would not normally use. I love orange, but I am not a big blue fan. Not sure why not but it just does not speak to me. So here is my attempt to put a favorite color with a not so favorite color.

I challenge you to do the same. Let's see what color combinations you can come up with.

On this sample I used the new dotted peony set by Nina B. Loving it! I was a little scared at first to use this set since I was thinking that I had to color it. But now that I realize that I can use colored ink, I am playing with it all the time.

I think I have found my new favorite color combination. Plus, this set is so very easy to use.
